Radiotherapy in cancers: We do our utmost to alleviate your illness for you. We know the gravity of the issues cancer raises among those it afflicts. We therefore clarify everything of importance with you about your diagnosis and the forthcoming therapy in an extensive initial briefing.
We accompany you. We know that, apart from using the latest and most sophisticated technology, your illness necessitates a high degree of human contact.
Organizational issues - such as arranging appointments or therapy - are not supposed to additionally encumber our patients either. So we work in close conjunction with our colleagues from other medical disciplines. Short unbureaucratic channels prevent further stress, therefore bolstering our therapy.
Radiotherapy in inflammatory diseases of the joints: excessive and improper stresses often induce changes in bones, tendons and joints, the frequent consequence of which is painful restricted mobility or even loss of mobility. Quality of life suffers in general if routine daily tasks are associated with pain.
If drugs or physiotherapy treatments do not bring about a clear improvement, radiotherapy can provide effective relief - especially with diseases of a chronic, inflammatory or degenerative nature.
This special therapy has an anti-inflammatory effect, inhibits autoimmune processes and affects cell functions to directly relieve symptoms. It is completely painless and has few side effects.
